Hi all,

I am currently recovering from the D and C I had done yesterday. I had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks. So far recovery is pretty easy and I'm not having to take the pain meds that were prescribed.
The tissue was sent to the pathologist for chromosome testing. we wait the 1 to 2 months before we start trying again. I know some doctors say to wait 2 cycles, but my feeling is that I'll start trying again after next period.

The good news is that we conceived pretty quickly after I stopped the pill (end of June).

Glad you are recovering well. I too had a D&C this month so we're back to TTC's hoping we get a BFP soon! :)
